Schauer Jobs Plan Will Cost you $3.7 Billion
According to a new analysis by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy Democrat gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer’s job's plan would increase the State of Michigan's budget by approximately $3.7 billion dollars.
The increased spending would go to:
- public schools
- universities, community colleges
- film subsidies
- state revenue sharing payments to local governments
- higher unemployment benefits,
- Universal pre-school programs and more.
Another issue is Mark does not offer the citizens of Michigan any details on how he would pay for the increases beyond non-specific suggestions like “cut wasteful spending to save taxpayer dollars,” "review state contracts" and “make government more efficient and effective.”
This new spending would increase our budget from $53.29 billion when federal dollars are included, to an eye popping approximately $58 billion dollars.
